The annual congregational meeting of the Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church was held on Wednesday evening. The usual reports
were submitted and the church's progress in the past year proved most
encouraging in the growth of membership and financially.
A very pleasant feature of the
meeting was the presentation to Miss
Margaret Ross, of an elegant silver
tea service, and tray; the presentation
was made by Rev. G. A. Wilson on
behalf of the congregation, in recognition of years of devoted service
in all lines of church work; Miss
Ross being an active member of the
C. E„ the Ladies Aid, and the leading
soprano  in the choir.
Mr. H. W. Maynard read the address accompanying the gift. Miss
Ross was taken so by surprise and
too much effected to reply by more
than an expression of thanks and
the visible evidence of her appreciation of the esteem and good will
which prompted the gift .
Tho church has a membership of 802,
u net iucroaBo of 20 for the year. The
Sundny School, including officers nnd
tenchcrs, is 457, nnd the Christian Endeavor membership is 84. The revenue
from all agencies amounted to 14.850,
and the ohnroh debt has been reduced
about S1.000 during tho year. The

On Monday evening a meeting of
the ratepayers of District Lot 321
was held to discuss school matters.
Mr. G. W. Thomas occupied the
chair for a time. Mr. Miller moved
that all who were not ratepayers to
be asked to leave the meeting. The
chairman refused to put the motion
at lirst, but doing so it was lost. Mr
Miller still insisted that those not
cligablc to vote should leave tlie
room, but tlie chairman refused to
entertain such a suggestion, whereupon Mr. Miller moved that M.
Thomas be asked lo vacate the chair
The motion was carried and Mr. Miller was duly elected to the chair. After a brief discussion it was decided
lo make a grant of $000 towards the
maintenance of the school. Mr. R.
A. McCiillough suggested that the
meeting take some proper course regarding the School Act so thai something definite could be forwarded to
the Provincial Government. No
action was taken, but llie majority
present, who were followers of the
Laurier Government, passed a resolution deprecating the legislation.

Sho camo to the rough table and
poured out a cup of coffee. It was
the lirst meal they had taken alone,
and he watchetl her under his lowered lids for a time, then rose and
went tlown to the beach and gazed
at his raft with grim satisfaction.
At dawn tho next morning ho was
awake, antl stood over Fleming,
who. Mannering thought, was asleep,
but Fleming oiH'iied his eyes and
smiled  wanly.
"Nearly ready. Fleming," said
Mannering.    "How  do  you  feel?"
Fleming smiled and moved his hand
feebly, and Mannering went down to
the raft. He fixed up a mast for the
sail antl rigged a rough, and he wns
going up to Nina's hut for the provisions when he met her coining
swiftly down tho bench.
"Everything ls ready, I think--"
he said, but she broke in upon him
with an anxious cry.
"Oh, come at once! Mr. Fleming
is ill—worse!"
Hu strode beside her, his brows
knit, anil they entered the hut.
Fleming wus lying on his buck, his
face whito anil pinched, his eyes closed.
"Is that you, Mannering?" he asked in so low a voice that Mannering
could scarcely hear it.
"Yes, it's I. What's the matter,
Fleming?" replied Mannering. "Aro
you ill—worse? The raft—everything
is ready."
"Too late!" said Fleming, calmly.
It is wonderful how calm your dying
man can be. For hiin all earthly
turmoil, all earthly struggles, doubts,
I am dying.     1 am sorry.     Where—
where is Miss Nina?"
She was beside him, her hand on
his wrinkled brow, her pitying eyes
full of tears.
"I'm sorry, Mannering. I would
huvo done what you wished, but
there was not timo. You—you will
have to do as I said. My—my Frny-
er ltook! Quick! My voice—my
breath—are going. Nina, my child,
where are you?"
Nina sank on her knees beside the
bod. Mannering hud got the Prayer
Iiuok from underneath the pillow,
and Fleming almost snatched at it
unil pressed it to his chest.
"It is too late," he gasped.
"Heaven hus decided. You—you cannot resist its decree. Kneel, Munnering."
Mannering, mechanically, sank onto
his knees beside Nina, whese face
was hidden In her hands.
"Whnt are you going to do, Fleming? Mako an effort! The raft is
ready, but you need not sail to-day!"
"1 am dying!" suid Fleming,
solemnly. "1 felt thut 1 could not
wait—that it would be too late.
Mannering, you remember our conversation? You know that I am
right.    You—you consent?"
"Yos, yes!" replied Munnering,
scarcely conscious of what ho said,
"ilut,  Miss Nina—"
"She must consent!" gusped Fleming.    "Shu   cannot   refuse.   Thero    is
no ulternutivel'   Tuk<_-—take her hand. I
Have you—havo you    unything that '
will serve as u ring?   Anything—"
.Munnering, hypnotised by the
solum earnestness of the dying man,
tore the signet ring from bis dinger.
"Thero, if you must!" bo said, '
Fleming had  found the Servico   ol j
Holy  Matrimony  and began  to read
It  slowly,   painfully,  with   pauses  in
which ho  struggled for  breath.
As if in a dream Nina and Mannering, prompted by the dying man,
made tho proper response, Bravely,
with faltering accents and heroic
snuggles with his death wetikness,
the Reverend Arthur Fleming read
tho Marriugo Servico.
At the proper moment Mannering
took Nina's hi'id—it wns limp and
yielding to hin touch—and placed th*
ring on her ting r.
The solemn words of exhortation
were gasped by the young priest, the
l'ruyer Book dropped from his weak
lingers, and ho extended his hands
above their heuds and panted out the
benediction, With a great effort he
wrote somo words on a sheet of paper and put it in Nina's hnnUs, then,
with a low cry,  he fell back.
Mannering sprung to his feet aud
bent ovor hiin.
"Ho Is—dead!" ho cried, hoarsely,
to Nina as she knelt, with her faco
covered by her trembling hands. "He
is dead—und wu are married!" he
aiided, inaudibly.
Mannering bad read the Burial Service over Fleming, unil Nina, who
had stood beside tho grave until the
last spade full of earth had fallen,
went slowly, and with bent head und
tear-blinded eyes, to her hut.
When his tusk was finished, Mannering leant on his spude and gazed
after her with a moody and perplexed brow. The girl and ho was married; they wore alone on this desoluto
island; but they were man and wifo

mudn his hands clench tightly  on the
spade    antl the    blood  rush   to     his

rasstn    .1,   a   tragic  shyness   and   dis-
cotnlor.,   had   assailed     hiin,   and   ho
knew   that she must be feeling  inexactly   the same Way, but worse.      lt
was  for liim  to belli her;  it  was his
duty  lo make life possible undor the

would   be   better  to   leave  lu-r  alono

lines und went down to the rocks to
cutcb  (iBh  and  think  over tho situation.
Meanwhile, Nina closed the door of
the iuit,    and put  in    its place   the
line,   bolt  of    wood thut   Mannering
hnd  lixed   for  her.       Then she  sunk
into   the  chair and covered  her  face
•vim her hands.   Orlof for ihe loss of
the young clergyman whom  she hud
lovcil us u brother mingled with tho
dismay   uud    embarrassment of   ber
own   condition.     Presently   sbe  took
from   her   pocket  tho  piece  of  paper
which  l-leiuing had  pressed  into  ber
It  wns  a certificate    of marriage,
nnd   as slie  read    tho feebly   written
lines  a  burning    blush    rose  to    her
cheeks  and   her  lips  quivered.      She
v\ us  married  to a man of whom she
knew nothing but his name.   She wus
in iiis power—tho power which a hus
bund  holds over liis wife.      He   had
said   thnt   llie    marriage    should   be
one  in  r    ne only.   And. ah, yes, she
could   trust    hiin!      He  had    proved
himself so brave, so unselfish, so self-
sacrificing;   he    hnd  even  risked    his
lite  tor  hers.      Yes,  she told  herself,
striving  lo gain confidence from  the
reiteration of the assurance, lhat sho
could trust  to his honor.
Sho  sat  for  some  time,  the  certificate  in  her    bund,  her   brain    half
dazod with thought; then she remem-
lierod tint  she had work to do. and
—blessed be drudgery!—she sprang to
her feet with the sense of relief which
comes at the mere thought of action,
of    something    definite,     something,
however  trilling,     that  must   be  accomplished.
And—and after all It was the duty
of a  wife—the    name stung her!—to
feetl her husband.
She opened  the   door and    looked
out   witb   shy   embarrassment,   but
Mannering was  out of sight  on   tho
rocks,   and  sbe    wont  to  the   spring
and  tilled  the    can  and trussed    the
wild duck she was going to cook for
dinner.   She   smiled   ns  sho  performed the task.     It  was    an extraordinary wedding, a singular honeymoon.
Where    were    the    bridesmaids,    the

Evory now and then as she moved
about, keeping ns neur the hut as
possible, sin; glanced, expecting to
see Mannering; but ho did not make
his appearance, and at the usual
hour she carried the meal to the
men's hut and waited.
Half an hour, three-quarters, passed, and he did not come. A grim
suggestion flashed across her mind
nnd sent the blood to her faec; hud
he, in terror at what he had done,
taken tho raft and left her—lied from
the woman he had been forced to
The idea was a wild and foolish
one, and sho was suffering from the
shame of it when she heard bis step.
She roso from her seat beside the
tire, then dropped down again and
bent over her pot.
Mannering had schooled himself—
hail, indeed, rehearsed his part—and
he camo in with a cheerful countenance ns if no marriage had tul.cn
placo—as if their position towards
each other had suffered no alteration.
Nothing—no word of his, no sign—
he hu-' sworn to himself, should remind of the fact thut she was
tied to him,
"Dinner ready? I'vo had good luck
to-day," hu said, holding up the fish
he hnd caught, "1 menu to catch a
lot of these fellows presently and salt
thom down for the winter."
She paused ns sho was lifting tho
pot from the lire, paused with dismay at the prospoct, but he thought
it wus becnuse tho thing was too
heavy, and he went in her and took
it from  her hand.
"Lol me. lt smells delicious! And
I'm fearfully and wonderfully hungry."
He forced himself—ho had lieen rehearsing his facto] expressions as

and frankly at her as he sat opposite
her ut the lulilc, ami she contrived
lo meet Ids gaze us openly and as unreservedly.
"You have proved yourself a remarkably good cook," hu said, as ho
tasted the stewed duck. "You would

There is nothing more necessary to
equip people for the " strenuous life"
of modern times than good food. Man
physically should be like a well-regulated machine, and nothing contributes to this end more than food that
ls not only pleasing to the taste but
that also strengthens and nourishes.
It has been demonstrated that there
is no other food made from flour so
rich In nutriment and bod'y-buildlng
elements as are soda biscuits. This Is
saying much for drdinary crackers,
and much more for Mooney's Perfection Cream Sodas, which are widely
recognized as the most perfect soda
biscuits tn all Canada. They are
crisp and delicious, delightful to the
taste and always wholesome. Being
a perfect food, highly nourishing and
easily digested, they are fitted to repair wasted strength, preserve health
and prolong life.. Mooney's Sodas
are the result of years of study of the
best methods of producing superior
crackers. They are manufactured In
the cleanest and best-equipped bakeries In all Canada. The workmen are
the most skilled on the continent, and
the materials used are of a very high
order. Tho flour ls a special blend,
milled only for the Mooney factory,
and the butter and cream are procured direct from the famous dairies
of Western Ontario. Not an ounce of
"Inferior butter" finds Its way Into
Mooney goods. The materials being
balanced, the result, ls a toothsome
and pure food, easily digested, and
converted Into brawn , bono and
brain. No other soda cracker quite
compares with them, and no other receives such a generous welcome at a
table where they have once become
known. The pre-eminence they have
attained Is due to genuine merit, as
they tempt beyond resistance all who
like good things to eat.
That tho geographical area of America is not fully comprehended by the

At the end of the fourth day, master
and servant seated themselves in the

Bloodless   Girls   Saved   by   Dr.   Williams'   Pink   Pills.
Dying by inches—that is the only
way to describe hundreds of bloodless
girls wbo are slipping slowly but surely from simple anaemia into a decline.
They drag themse:ves along with one
foot In the grave through those years
of youth that should be the happiest
in their lives. Aid the whole trouble
lies in the blood. Bad blood is the
fountain-head of all the trouble that
afflicts woman from maturity to middle life. Bad blood causes all the
backaches and sldeaches, all the paleness, breathlessness and despondency; all the heart palpitation, sickly
dizzy turns and deathly fainting
spells. From fainting spells to consumption is only a step. In nine
cases out of ten, consumption starts
from bloodlessness—and the only
sure cure for bloodlessness Is Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. They actually
make new, rich, bood, that, brings the
rosy glow of health to sallow cheeks,
and strength to every part of the
body. This has been proved In thousands of cases. Miss Frances Peach,
Welland, Ont., says:—"A couple of
y ears ago my condition of health was
very serious. Doctors saitl that I
had no blood—that it turned to water
1 was unfit to do anything for months
and was little more than a living
skeleton. I had no appetite; the
least exertion would leave me breathless, and I hud frequent severe headaches. I was treated by several doctors, but they failed to help me.and I
was completely discouraged. Then
I was urged to take Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, and in a few weeks found
my health Improving. 1 used eight
boxes in all, and was by that time
again well and strong. I gained
twenty-two pounds in weight, and
never felt better in my life."
What Dr. Williams' Pink Pink Pills
did for Miss Peach they can do for
every other weak as(il siil'iig girl.
They make new blood, and new blood
brings health, strength and happiness.

How the Gem. Are Obtained and Dl»-
poaed of In Cerlon.
Since Keats told how "tbe Ceylon
diver beld his breath and went, all
naked, to tbe hungry shark" many
poets have exhausted tbe resources of
their imagination in trying to describe
the wonderful pearl fisheries of Ceylon. A few facts about them may be
of interest, lf only ns an antidote to so
much poetry.
The pearl fisheries are the property
of the government of Ceylon. The
divers are paid no wuges, but receive
one-third of the oysters they bring up,
the remaining two-thirds being taken
by a government agent and sold at
public auction to speculative buyers,
who gather from all parts of the orient. The pearl fishery usually lasts
from thirty to forty days, but does not
take place every year. If It did the
oyster banks would soon be ruined.
Sometimes several years are allowed to
puss by without a fishery.
The diving Is done after a primitive
fashion, nntl the stories told about the
marvelous length of time the divers
will remain under water arc quite unfounded. Tbe record is 1 uiluute 49
The auction, which lusts for several
days, ls one of the most Interesting
sights to be seen In Asia. The oysters
are sold ln lots of 1,000, and of course
the purchaser ls buying "a pig in a
poke." There may be no pearls in any
of bis oysters or tho first one he opens
may give him a fortune. This risk appeals to the gambling spirit of the
orient, nnd pretty nearly all the races
from the Persian gulf to Japan are
represented at the sale.
The prices paid usually start low on
the first day. Then If the buyers have
found pearls In fair quantities bidding
is keen, and the prices jump skyward.
One year tbey varied from 15s. 4d. per
1,000 on tbe lirst duy to £12 17s. lOd.
on tbe second.
It is remarkable that the fisheries
are still so profitable, for there are
historical records that they were worked there 300 years before the birth of
Christ, and It Is impossible to say how
many years before that date.

Terrible Experience of a French-Canadian Miner — Wandered Around
Trail Creek For 17 Daya.
Lost ln the bush for seventeen days,
half demented most of the time, forced to subsist on grass and flower-tops,
and yet all the while 'v it .bin sound of
civilization, which he could not reach,
was the terrible experience of Archibald Gagnon, who recently bought a
mining claim near Rossland, British
Columbia. He Is a French-Canadian,
and he tells a tale of suffering and privation that eclipse the experiences of
many of the early voyageurs of Quebec Province, whose sufferings aro recorded ln history. Hailing from Montreal, he came to the coast and went
up to the mines, where he bought a
claim ln the Trail Creek region on a
stream near Castlegar.
Being a tenderfoot, and not knowing
the dangers of the swiftly-running Columbia River, with Us hidden rocks and
suddenly-formed whirlpools, he built a
rude raft, loaded lt with his outfit and
set out from Deer Park, near Trail, for
his claim. The daring voyageur and
his stock were doomed to disaster from
the moment tht man pushed off from
the shore. The frail craft quickly went
to pieces ln the treacherous waters.
After a vain attempt to save part of
his outfit, Gagnon found he had all his
work cut out to emerge alive from the
swirling waters. After a frightful buffeting he managed to crawl ashore almost dead.
In his exhausted condition he started to make his way on his hands and
knees to a farmhouse which he knew to
be about two miles away, but he was
forced to give up, and finally lost his
bearings altogether. He next tried to
walk to his claim, after 24 hours' rest,
but his vitality had been bo reduced
that he had to abandon that task also.
Thereafter he wandered about, on the
verge of madness, satisfying his hunger by eating grass and flower-tops. On
the tenth day he met a man and a boy
carrying fish, but his English was not
good enough to enable him to explain
to them his dire condition, and they left
A week later he was discovered accidentally by the crew of a Canadian
Pacific tie train, and was taken to
Trail Hospital, where he now lies. During his wanderings he had heard every
day the whistle of the train, but could
not locate lt. At the time he started
on the trip he weighed 185 pounds, but
be ls now reduced to 100 pounds.

Curves Snake-Bite by Charm.
The report from the Township of
Sandwich West, that an attempt had
been made to counteract the effect of
the poison ln a boy's leg, produced by
the bite of a rattlesnake, by a charm,
caused some enquiries to be made, and
lt was ascertained that snake poison
charmers have been known In Essex
County for the past hundred years.
Tradition says that this power was received from the Indians who roomed
through the forests on both sides of
the Detroit River years before the white
man made his appearance.
Henry Meloche, who conducts a fish
store ln Windsor, and who ls nearly
SO years old, said that, when Ha was a
small boy, he witnessed the charm tried
on his father, and claims that, without
any medicine or medical aid, his parent recovered after the charm had
been worked.    He said:
"My father was bitten ln the Held
at 8 o'clock ln the morning and a messenger was at once despatched to Belle
River for Jacques Latonler, who was
famous as a snake poison charmer.
He came to our home as fast as bis
horse would carry him, and when he
arrived he found the limb greatly swollen and a string, which had been tied
around the leg to prevent the poison
from reaching the body, was burled ln
the flesh.
Latonler, after making an examination of the wound, said lt was a snake
bite, and he produced a piece of string
made from a deer Bkln and proceeded
to tie lt around the leg. As he tied
the flrst knot he muttered a single
word, and before he finished the work
ha had placed seven knots In the string,
and had uttered as many words. The
word were in the Indian language, and,
almost Immediately after finishing his
incantation, noticed that tbe swelling
began to fall.
"In a few hours the leg was down
to Its natural size and the deer hide
string fell about the ankle of Its own
accord, as lt became too loose to remain on tha leg."
"I never saw lt attempted on any
other persons," conclude* Mr. Meloche,
"but I have often heard of Latonler
visiting different people who were bitten ln the old days. Snakes were pl-'n-
tlful ln Essex County iifty yours ago,
and lt was not uncommon for a number of people to be bitten by rattlers
every year."

Pacifio  Cable   Deficit.
A detailed report of the work of th-j
Pacific cable for tbe past year has
been received by the Government at
Ottawa. It shows that the number of
messages and words transmitted during the year 1904-6 were approximately
177,961 and 2,056,953 respectively, of
whleh 106,782 messages and 1,183,929
words were Intercolonial. Tho audited
trafllo figures for 19034 amounted to
176,824 messages and 2,097,897 words, nf
which 108,211 messages and 1,2.12,921
words were Intercolonial. The expenditure of tho board on tho service of
the cable during the 12 months ended
March 81, 1906, amounted lo £50,751,
against £64,824 ln tho previous year
The total receipts amounted to £S7.4U
10s 8d, "Including a special Item of
£6,118 on account of repair services
rendered by the Iris," against £80,118
last year.
The surplus on actual working wai
therefore £36,694. The board, however, set aside £36,000 for the renewal
fund, and they had also to provide
a sum of £77,544 for Interest and
sinking fund, which ln fifty years will
extinguish tht whole capital expenditure.
These figures mean that the contributing Governments must make
good a deficiency of £75,849 against
£87,761 ln the preceding year.

day there arose on the horizon of the
commercial world a new and vvond

On Monday afternoon the r.itepay-
rs of South Vancouver met in an-
.ual meeting to hear the Reeve and
Councillor give an account of their
stewardship for the past year. Reeve
Geo. Rae gave a resume of the work
he had done in the interests of the
municipality , and the advancement
made in opening up new roads,
growth of population and financial
standing of the municipality; he
showed that it was in a more prosperous condition than it has ever
been. He promised to endeavour to
secure a new bridge over the North
Arm, in conjunction with Richmond
municipality, if re-clcctcd, also extension of the electric tram service,
electric lights and a new rock crusher for transporting about the municipality.
The Reeve was kept busy for a
time answering a number of questions, after which the Councillors for
tlie various wards were heard.
After the 1905 council had been
heard, Mr. C. F. Foreman made a
stirring address which was loudly applauded by his supporters and received in silence by his opponents. He
claimed that South Vancouver was
an unknown locality to a greater
portion of the people of Vancouver
and surrounding places and contrasted its semi-stale of oblivion to
the publicity given to the young municipality of North Vancouver and
the progressive spirit shown in its
advancement. If he was elected he
proposed to give the municipality all
the publicity he could and do all in
his power to encourage everything
tending to the improvement of the
There is a contest in every ward
and the electors will to-day show how
they stand oin the exciting issues
raised in the present campaign. The
following are the candidates in the
field  ,in   to-day's   election:   :,
For  Reeve—
Geo. Rae and C. F. Foreman.
For  Councillors—
Ward I— A. E. Almas and Richard
Ward II— II. J. Ballson, W. J.
Dickinson and R. Frost.
Ward III—Donald Burgess and
Samuel  Taylor.
Ward IV—William Middler and W.
A. Pound.

It is safe to predict that a new
record will be made in the selling of
dotted and embroidered Swisses during the coming season. The general demand is not likely to show
much departure from the dots and
conventional patterns that have been
popular season after season with
very little modification regarding
patterns. The city importers of
fine white goods have again bought
good assortments of the larger embroidered figures. These sold well
last year, but there is a tendency
everywhere to favor smaller designs.
The jobbers in taking their figured
Swjss orders have noted that better
grades have done much better than
cheap qualities. Retailers generally
want Swisses to retail, at least, for
fifty cents, and the surprising amount
of higher priced goods already sold
ahows that the standard has improved considerably in the course of the
last two years.
Small things are of incalculable importance in the wardrobe, but of all
of them neck fixings arc the most
abundant. Just now there is a veritable rage for the Pierrot ruches
and scarfs which furnish plain gowns
J     l,.-.i;....      „...,.|_.r!„l1y.
These little wrappings arc very
comfortable, too, for days when a
coat is a burden and a slight neck
protection is desirable. Boug.it
ready made these trifles arc nol In.
txpensive, but they arc easily made
at home at little cost.
For the huge Pjerrot ruche nf

or  a  yard  In  length  will  be  banted.

Two kinds of tulle, one rather firm
and coarse, and the other of the line
illusion order, arc needed. The
tulle is cut in widthwise bands twelve
or fourteen inches wide and about
six yards long. Toward the ends
the bands should narrow a little.
Plait them through tlie middle with
very full double box plaits at the
back and sides of the neck. Toward the ends make them less full.
Arrange the coarse ruchiii'gs on
the ribbon and the fine ones over
them, so that the tulle will be on the
outside of the 'big ruche. Those
boas are made in magpie mixtures
to harmonize with suits and are often
in graduated shades of one color. The
ends are finished with velvet ribbon
or of pompadour or other fancy ribbon arranged in loops of varying
lengths. About six yards of ribbon
will be wanted  for  each  end.
A lovely neckpiece may be made of
taffeta or monsseline de soie, linen
fine embroided lawn and dotted muslin.
A foundation collar is first shaped
to the shoulders and cut square at
the front. On this are placed two
rows of the trimming—insertion of
embroidery ;or lace—bordered wfith
tiny gathered ruches of lace, chiffon
or ribbon. The outside over-arm
frill should be ten inches wide. These
arc made of the foundation material.
Al the back the collar may be round
or pointed.

Is it but tho idle faucy
Of a mocking necromancy
That together, leal' aud blossom, by the
Indus once we grew,
Aud that Hanz enme, or Omar,
To imprison the aroma
In some half-remembered measure which
hus rhythmod 1110 to you.
Is it false or is it real
Thnt, iu ages more ideal,
I was song, and you were Sappho; yen
were sunbeam, I the dew?
For I loug have felt the burgeon
Of a passion, vague and virgin,
Which yoa quicken  to rememberance
of a former life we knew.
Wero you stream wheu I was
willow ?
Was I shell whon you were billow ?
For your voice has ever echoed through
the hushes of my heart;
Aud it seems, as I behold you,
Tbnt  _o very nir foretold yon
By the fragrance wliich, iu welcomo, all
the bnddiug boughs impart.
But nt last I staud beside you,
And tbe fate which loug denied
Yields, in recompense, a dearer iucaruu-
tiou than iny dream
What I sought to what yon nro,
Wns o'. twilight -to tho star, Love,
As the languor is to  summer,  as the
murmur to the stream.
And since age on age lias polished
But to bring tbe soul I cherisbod,
Wherein thought and feeling, blended,
are us petal and perfume,
Let us linger here forever,
Whero the prido of ifll endeavor
Is a fervor which to passion is as glamour
uuto gloom.
Yet, if Fate reserves its nialico,
But to break the lif tod chalice,
Let 1110 mingle with the elements, whore
once I was a part;
Then, on some suporual morning
Which your boauty is adorning,
As n dewdrop lu a lilly, I may nestle iu

The Fmmilon of an

and as far as possible a lasting impression.
Tho first and principal object of a very great doul of advertising
is not directly that of selling goods, but of establishing a worthy
fame—a recognized reputation—to make the goods aud tho house
known. Customers must oomo with some idea of tbo goods tbey
seek, tho more knowledge the butter. With conlidouce inspired
by effective advertising, it is then up to the iilesmau to do the.1
rest—to mnke good by courtesy and a skillful presentation of the ''

Everyone knows thaffor anything
to become known, it must be talked
about. For an article to become
popular its virtue must be made the
subject of a public announcement.
That is advertising! Consequently
if the survival of the fittest applies
to business principles as well as it
does to other walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity—the better the results.
Gortd results mean good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises for. If he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he would not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space—British Advertiser.
